For a conservative, I actually thought this wasn’t so bad.
I would say the difference between us is that I believe what we are seeing now is the logical conclusion of classical liberalism. It is a system which glorifies rights claims, individualism, freedom, equality, tolerance, democracy, free markets and so on. It is a system which inexorably unravels the social fabric by keeping society in a perpetual state of social revolution. Whether it is done in the name of “liberty” or “equality,” authority and order are perpetually in the crosshairs and steadily lose ground.
When I look at Caitlyn Jenner, I see don’t see a sad case of expressive individualism gone too far. I see someone who represents the culmination of the American Creed. Similarly, the devastation wrought by globalization is just an example of market fundamentalism being taken to its logical conclusion. The same is true of collapse of the family and the disintegration of our national borders. What is that but the application of the acid of “liberty” to areas where liberalism is making new inroads?
Some degree of liberty, equality, individualism, tolerance and so on was a GOOD THING. Like any good thing though, it can be perverted into its opposite when taken to extremes. We passed that point a long time ago.
